Sacchi: 'Milan clubs difficult'

Former Italy and Milan Coach Arrigo Sacchi has stated that Inter 'are a difficult team' and Milan 'have no identity'.

After he told the Press that Juventus lack credible rivals for the title, and also asserted that Roma are 'struggling with a thousand problems'.

The 70-year-old then turned his attention to the situation at both Milan clubs.

"Inter are a difficult team. I hear it said that they have to sign more players: they have brought in 30-40 in the last couple of years.

"In order to win you need great motivation and the right spirit: this is the petrol that drives the engine of the game.

"Look, I'm not an aesthete: you play in order to win. A film with no plot does not stand up, even with the best actors."

What about the abilities of Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri and Vincenzo Montella at Milan?

"Allegri is a great Coach, he has everything needed to become a great, but he needs to learn not to be satisfied. In Europe, teams practice an open kind of football, which is what brings you closer to success. "

"Montella? He gets results that no one expected, however, he must do better in the construction of the play. He has taken a few knocks, but must be purposeful as he always has been.

So he remains one of the many. Milan have results but has no identity."

Is the title race all over already?

"It depends on Juve. There is only one risk: Mandzukic is a world-class player but doesn’t seem able to become a stop-gap.

"Higuain comes from an extraordinary season in Naples and to change teams in this situation is usually a mistake.

"But I think he will do well at Juventus, so I do not see a big chance for those who are chasing"
